It may be that we usually water for the first week. We tend not to do a lot of watering. I think the plants then would create a dependency and they’d almost expect you to go out there and water them everyday. So we only do it if its really needing to be watered. I like the plants to be able to be dependant so that they will actually go down and look deeper for the water. I sure wouldn’t let them dry out, in that sense. We try and mulch and keep things pretty much around them to help retain the moisture.
